Wonderful meal and service! Fantastic charcuterie board, homemade sausages, seasoned cheeses, and some oysters to boot! Entree’s included grilled swordfish and gulf fish courtbouillon that were both devine and tasteful with accoutrements! Dessert was ice box key lime pie! Elegant, classy, yet comfortable dining where the staff are super attentive, warm and friendly. Worth spending the money for this special restaurant.

We had seven people for a business dinner. This was my second visit and the food and service were again top notch. A trio of appetizers were well received by our party and the soups, entrees, and desserts drew rave reviews by everyone at the table. They have a fine selection of wines and whisky's but the mark up is excessive, not uncommon at an establishment of this regard. The decor needs an update and the music was a bit too loud, making us have to work a little harder to maintain conversation. But the fine cuisine and attentive service still make this a can't miss dining experience.

Made reservations for 10 on Open Table.
Have eaten a couple of times at Vegas location so was confidant that this would be good.
Waiters were very helpful and fun,made it a great time.
Wine list was very large with some great bottles available.
Most of us all ordered some kind of steak and we all was very pleased with them.
We ordered a gambit of apps and all was delicious!
Desert we most went with the vanilla crepe brûlée and again it was perfect!
Service was just perfect.
Great place and just a beautiful old house redone to a splendid restaurant!
Must stop here.

I ate here 14 years ago, and it has always stood out as one of the best meal experiences of my entire life. Taking my son there this week, I was a little worried that it had changed, but no worries at all. This is still the premiere experience of the Emeril restaurants, and our meal was delicious, the service was impeccable. Our Captain, Kevin, and the rest of the serving team took excellent care of us, and our meal there will be the one we remember from this week in the years to come.

Service and food were as expected excellent. Upstairs in the corner adjacent to the Service hall not exactly a great spot to land. Won’t let it prevent us from returning but will be more specific as to where we want to be seated. Ground floor definitely preferred.

By far the best dining experience I’ve ever come in contact with. Brett, our waiter, was extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of the menu. The cherry on top was the “Good Samaritan” picking up everyone’s check in our dining room. It was the most pleasant restaurant experience I’ve ever encountered!

We thoroughly enjoyed our valentine’s day dinner. We made our reservations and came in at the reservation time and were sat immediately. The restaurant was always full so we were surprised to not have to wait. The service was impeccable and so was the food. Would definitely recommend for date night or for any special occasion.

It was a wonderful experience. We had the Caesar salad and the Gulf Shrimp Bordelaise. The greens were fresh and tasty and the Shrimp Bordelaise was well-portioned, with tender shrimp and perfectly cooked pasta. The bread served prior to the entre is cornbread that tastes more like, "Cornbread cake," as one of our waitstaff commented. I highly recommend that if you are in New Orleans, you make it a priority to dine at this restaurant.
